Laser Macro Line Generator 5LMM+55CM / 5LPM+55CM

Laser line with an extended depth of field

The laser macro line generators 5LMM…+55CM, resp. 5LPM…+55CM are characterized by a constant line width over the entire line length, an extended depth of field, and their compact design.

The beam-shaping optics define the beam parameter fan angle and line length, the optimum working distance and the focussing range, see 'Technical Data'. The chosen laser module defines the wavelength and the power output and, thereby, the laser safety class.
